REACH Community Health Centre is led by a volunteer Board of Directors elected by our membership each year at our Annual General Meeting. Their role is to govern the organization on behalf of the community in a timely, transparent, and accountable manner by overseeing the performance of the organization and ensuring fiscal integrity and regulatory compliance. The Executive Director is responsible for operational matters and reports to the Board of Directors. They enact policy at the Board's direction.
Our directors live or work in East Vancouver or are clients of REACH programs. They serve two year terms up to a maximum of four terms. A director should be committed to and knowledgeable about REACH, have the time available to attend regular meetings, and have the appropriate skill set to provide leadership and governance direction to the organization. Board members are expected to support and sign our board job description, statement of confidentiality and conflict of interest policy. Each year a nominating committee is struck to recruit new members based on board needs and our strategic plan.
Each board member is a part of a variety of committees that address particular needs or areas of concern at REACH. These committees are:
There are also a number of smaller, temporary sub-commmittees that a struck on a ad-hoc basis to solve problems.
The administration team works behind the scenes to ensure REACH continues as a mainstay in the Commercial Drive community.
Each department contributes to REACH in different ways, but together, we address the social determinants of health and ensure everyone has access to health care, whatever their needs.
We're often looking for qualified doctors, nurses, and support staff to join our team. Check back often for opportunities to be part of REACH!
